TS1 High Expectations CPD Resources

(0)
High expectations form the foundations on which effective teaching is built. As teachers, we have the ability to affect pupils outcomes in many ways. What we do not only impacts academic achievement, but wellbeing, motivation and behaviour. High expectations help to safeguard pupils from anxiety and fear of failure. How do we demonstrate this? Session objectives By purchasing this session, you will learn how to: create a positive classroom culture based on high expectations and shared values ensure that your own behaviour reflects the attitudes, values and behaviour you expect to see in pupils nuture a culture of mutual trust and support the difference between engagement and motivation
TS5 Adapting Teaching CPD Resources

TS5 Adapting Teaching CPD Resources

(0)
All learners must be able to access the content of our lessons effectively. TS 5 stipulates that we must adapt our teaching to respond to the strengths and needs of all pupils. How do we do that? By purchasing this session you will learn: When and how to differentiate How to use approaches which enable students to be taught effectively Which factors inhibit students’ learning How to overcome these factors How to adapt your lesson plan for different learner needs Ideal for trainee teachers and NQTs
Questioning Techniques CPD
saratrickeysaratrickey

Questioning Techniques CPD

(0)
Questioning techniques meet elements of TS1, TS4, TS5 and TS6. Questioning is the key means by which teachers find out what pupils already know, identify gaps in knowledge and understanding and scaffold the development of their understanding to enable them to close the gap between what they currently know and the learning goals. By purchasing this session, you will know: How to utilise Bloom’s Taxonomy in your lessons How to utilise Socratic Questioning in your lessons How to apply Piaget & Vygotsky’s theories to your teaching How to scaffold learning effectively
Retrieval Practice
saratrickeysaratrickey

Retrieval Practice

(0)
Retrieval practice is a strategy in which bringing information to mind enhances and boosts learning. Deliberately recalling information forces us to pull our knowledge “out” and examine what we know. Retrieval practice makes learning effortful and challenging. Because retrieving information requires mental effort, we often think we are doing poorly if we can’t remember something. We may feel like progress is slow, but that’s when our best learning takes place. The more difficult the retrieval practice, the better it is for long-term learning. Objectives By purchasing this resource, you will learn how to: understand what the research tells us about retrieval practice effectively embed retrieval practice into your classroom understand the science of learning linked to retrieval practice utilise retrieval practice in revision strategies
TS6 Assessment CPD Resources

TS6 Assessment CPD Resources

(0)
Assessment is an integral part of our learning and teaching. It facilitates daily ongoing review of individual progress and impacts on planning and target-setting for each child. In each phase of the school, students will have personal learning targets based on assessment outcomes. TS6 states that teachers must make accurate and productive use of assessment. But how do we do that? By downloading this resource, you  will understand the difference between formative and summative assessment understand how to make use of formative and summative assessment to secure pupils’ progress understand how to use relevant data to monitor progress, set targets, and plan subsequent lessons understand how to give pupils regular feedback, both orally and through accurate marking, understand how to encourage pupils to respond to the feedback. Ideal for trainee teachers and NQTs
TS2 Planning for Progress CPD Resources

TS2 Planning for Progress CPD Resources

(0)
Teacher Standard 2 says that all teachers must promote good progress and outcomes by pupilsBut how, exactly, do you do that? It’s one of the most common questions I get asked by teaching colleagues: “How can I demonstrate progress in a single lesson?”. By attending this downloading this session, you will: understand how to show that you are accountable for pupils’ attainment, progress and outcomes understand how to show that you are aware of pupils’ capabilities and their prior knowledge, understand how to plan teaching to build on pupils’ prior knowledge understand how to guide pupils to reflect on the progress they have made and their emerging needs understand how to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how pupils learn and how this impacts on teaching understand how to demonstrate that you encourage pupils to take a responsible and conscientious attitude to their own work and study. Ideal for trainee teachers and NQTs
TS4 Planning Lessons CPD Resources

TS4 Planning Lessons CPD Resources

(0)
All teachers must be able to plan and teach well-structured lessons (TS4). Lesson planning is a significant element of teaching - we all plan our lessons… but the better the quality of the plan, the better the lesson. By downloading this session you will learn: The stages of the Learning Cycle and how they inform lesson planning How to set meaningful objectives How to develop the introduction How to plan specific learning activities/episodes How to plan to check for understanding How to adapt your lesson plan for different learner needs How to develop a conclusion Ideal for trainee teachers and NQTs

Theme 1, Topic 1.1 Enterprise and entrepreneurship

(0)
An extended learning project book for GCSE Edexcel Business Studies (9-1) to support the teaching and learning of Theme 1, Topic 1.1 Enterprise and entrepreneurship which directs students through a report written to: Assess how successful a selected local enterprise has been in achieving its main purpose. Analyse how entrepreneurial characteristics and skills support the purpose of a selected local enterprise. Describe the entrepreneurial characteristics and skills demonstrated in each selected local enterprise. Compare the purpose, activities and aims of two contrasting local enterprises. Outline how entrepreneurial characteristics and skills support the purpose of each selected local enterprise. Outline in detail how the activities and aims meet the purpose of two contrasting local enterprises. Identify entrepreneurial characteristic and skills demonstrated in each selected local enterprise. Identify the purpose, activities and aims of two contrasting local enterprises.
Project Learning Diary

Project Learning Diary

(0)
In the run up to completing the Programming Project (NEA) for OCR GCSE Computer Science, it is sometimes difficult to track and monitor progress. Students often don’t take suitable notes or keep detailed comments on their previous code to serve as an aide memoire in future programming. This learning diary facilitates student reflection and evaluation of their learning within a lesson and allows progress to be tracked across a series of lessons. It could also be used to support tracking the progress of students within NEA lessons, perhaps as part of a homework.
Computers the basics

Computers the basics

(0)
By the time most students are in Year 7 they are extremely familiar with using computers for entertainment, research and school work. However, very few will have given the computer itself much thought. It is unlikely that they will know the origins of the first electronic computer or how computers have developed over the decades. Although they might have heard of the term, ‘transistor’, very few will know their role or how their development has been predicted by Moores’ Law. Even less will know about how computers process data and switch between tasks whilst working. And whilst they are familiar with the term, ‘software’, do they really know what it means? This scheme of work aims to provide a gentle introduction for students to the world of computers and computing
